The mushroom body (MB) is a higher center of the insect brain and is critical to some forms of associative memory. Each MB consists of calyces connected to alpha and beta lobes via pedunculus. In the calyces, input neurons make synaptic connections with intrinsic neurons. In the pedunculus and lobes, intrinsic neurons make synaptic connections with output neurons. Here, the distribution of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-like immunoreactivity in the MB of the cockroach Periplaneta americana was… CONTINUE READING
